Maverick song man, Neil Murray, returns to  south west WA for  solo performance at the River Hotel, Margaret River on Saturday Jan 5th.  Neil will be armed with a set list of landmark songs and Hindsight, a compilation double album containing 32 tracks.

With more than three decades performing and recording behind him, Neil is a respected and influential songwriter who has contributed handsomely to the nation’s contemporary music heritage.

A co- founding member of the pioneering Warumpi Band and writer of such classic songs as My Island Home, Blackfella Whitefella, Eddie Mabo, Whispering Casuarina, Native Born, Bring Thunder and Rain, Long Grass Band, Burrumbeep Hill and Good Light in Broome, Neil has delivered a string of remarkable solo albums.

Accolades include Warumpi Band’s Jailanguru Pakarnu (Out From Jail – co-written with Sammy Butcher and released in 1983 - credited as the first pop/rock single in an indigenous language – Luritja) and Christine Anu performing Neil’s 1995  APRA Song of the Year, the ‘anthemic’ My Island Home at the 2000 Olympics.  Both songs feature in the National Film and Sound Archive’s Sounds of Australia collection. Neil was also the 2017 Port Fairy Folk Festival Artist of the Year.

Missy Higgins has covered Calm and Crystal Clear and most recently, Liz Stringer with Lights of Hay.  Other artists to record Neil’s songs include Ireland’s Mary Black, Jimmy Little, Tiddas, Ursula Yovich, Emma Donovan, Powderfinger, Adam Brand, Peter Denahy, Peter Brandy and Amy Saunders.

As Midnight Oil’s Jim Moginie says “Neil Murray sings from the heart of the country” and this will be an engaging performance with iconic songs inspired by Australian lands and beyond.
